    You and me both, Jamaal. I missed analog TV. But on the plus side, there is more channels on DTV. Well, here in Atlanta.

    He doesn’t remember Bridget loves Bernie then.

    Hey Jamaal, go back to that program in Panel 2! I love hearing people swear on TV!

    The only good TV was back in the’50s, when I was too young to know better.

    I liked “Bridget Loves Bernie”. I also liked “The Farmer’s Daughter” and “Dick and the Duchess”. They were shows you could watch with your kids without “parental discression” or even watch on a first date. Now, I’m a great-grandmother and I’m embarrassed by what’s on TV for the most part.

    There was always bad TV. In the old days, they aimed for an average that they grossly overestimated, and sometimes they missed badly. Nowadays, demographics are well understood and it’s posssible to target the nose pickers and crotch scratcher in any group with high precision. Unfortunately, those folks are either in higher numbers or spend enough more to justify the advertising.

    I’m more of a I’m Dickens, He’s Fenster fan. I can appreciate your desire for wholesome television fare, but those were too sappy for my viewing pleasure. Can we meet at the middle with the Ghost and Mrs. Muir and Nanny and the Professor?

    “Family” tv. Who’s family? Unfortunately, there are enough watchers to make those programs profitable. Unfortunately, as well, there are a lot of viewers that think that this is reality.

    I have to agree with Jamaal. That is why I don’t watch anything but DVDs that I have bought. At least I know what I am getting.

    The worst word on TV back in the 1960s was “bull,” uttered by Jack Lord as Steve McGarrett in the original Hawaii Five-O in a 1968 episode. You couldn’t even say, “pregnant”!

    On the other hand, Red Forman actually got bleeped out several times on “That ’70s Show,” which aired from 1998-2006.

    Hold on, since when is getting rubbed all over considered to be a bad thing?
